Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

%N The sum of the heights of all bargraphs of semiperimeter n (n>=2).

%D A. Blecher, C. Brennan, A. Knopfmacher, The height and width of bargraphs, Discrete Appl. Math., 180, 2015, 36-44 (see pp. 41-42).

%F a(n) = Sum(k*A278132(n,k), k>=0).

%e a(4)=10; indeed, the bargraphs of semiperimeter 4 correspond to the compositions [3],[1,2],[2,2],[2,1],[1,1,1] and the sum of their heights is 3+2+2+2+1=10.
